Getting Acclimatised

From Santa Lucia Train Station to Piazza San Marco by water bus or on foot

The Santa Lucia train station and Piazza San Marco is connected by the canal, which was recognized as “the longest and the most beautiful street”, and is just about 4 km long. Both sides of the canal are lined with over one hundred year old buildings and palaces of former aristocrats and merchant princes. The Rialto Bridge, Accademia Bridge, and Scalzi Bridge or bridge of the barefoot, are the three old famous bridges that spans the canal.

Tourists can take Line 82 and get off at the San Marco stop. From the Piazzale to San Marco square, the road is filled with lots of peddlers, selling varieties of souvenirs in which the prices seem to be slightly expensive than others.
